We use a couple different fabric diaper systems, no logic behind that, just cold reality.
Wasn't sure what type of system would best suit us, was trying to make my own diapers, was given some both hand made and store bought...
If money wasn't an obstetrical, I would use only Kushie All-In-Ones.
But, my life being what it is, I have just two Med size Kushie All-In-Ones, which Richard will so outgrow.
My mother refers to my son as the "the butt-less baby", all of the all-in-ones I tried with snaps didn't fit him right, so we would end up with leaks or the diaper just falling off completely. The Kushie diapers are fairly light, fit, didn't fall off, we've had no leak issues, and they're cute.
The diapers I made are okay, flannel covers designed for a tri-fold insert for absorption; but my attempts to make a diaper cover haven't turned out so well. While I struggled with that my mother bought us some g diapers.
Primarily we use g diapers, we're making the system work for us but it's not ideal.
The love the concept of the g diapers! A fabric (hemp) cover, with a PUL pocket, which you stuff with either a hemp re-usable liner, or a disposable liner (which uses less of the disposable material than that of a traditional disposable diaper). I think it's a great system... but
I find the hemp liner when faced with the force of male urination slides down in the pocket, so not all of the urine is hitting the fabric and then we end up with leaks. If the liner was larger I think it would work better (honestly, I need to look up the measurements because even though I bought the M/L size, part of me wonders if I got a miss labeled box of small liners which would explain the problem).
Back to the butt-less baby issue, because of how tight I have to make the diaper to not slide off of Richard, the soft fabric elastic rubs his thighs (but I don't think that would be an issue for a baby with a proper rump).
So how so I make it work?
The g diaper liners fit in my flannel covers, and the tri-folds fit in the g diaper pockets (with an extra fold in the front for both of size and absorbancy). Furthermore, my diapers fit (more or less) in the g diaper covers, and the flaps of the diapers cover Richards thighs protecting him from the rubbing.
So I alternate between one of my diapers in his g diaper cover, and just a tri fold in his g diapers.
I'd rather use Kushies, but... but between my home made diapers and g diaper covers we have a system that works.
